Subject[patch 40/47] drivers/char/pcmcia/ipwireless/hardware.c fix resource leak
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Darren Jenkins <darrenrjenkins@gmail.com>
commit 43f77e91eadbc290eb76a08110a039c809dde6c9 upstream

Coverity CID: 2172 RESOURCE_LEAK

When pool_allocate() tries to enlarge a packet, if it can not allocate enough
memory, it returns NULL without first freeing the old packet.

This patch just frees the packet first.
